I like it. Sharp, composition fine, well exposed with great movement in the hair. I wouldn't change anything.

I'm struggling to place the location, it looks familiar...?

I can see whay you like it, - its really a very nice shot.

I would change the white balance to be a little warmer, its a tad cool. And if you want to print a 10 X 18 you could crop as in the mod.

Ive sharpened the mod, - not seeing it quite as sharp as Nick, - but either way its likely just compression loss, the original is a lot sharper. And on that subject, there is no shot settings uploaded, - so if you can, lest know what they were.

Those that favour cropping seem to have missed something - the original has a whole bunch of different framing going on that gets missed by cropping.

The classic poster shot of a quay stretching out into a lake effect is achieved by the bridge disappearing out into the field; yet at the same time it still has the girl as the focal point by making her feet and back emphasise the rule of thirds. Then on top of that the railings on the left are generating a diagonal version of the rule of thirds serving to frame the face, which is lit perfectly for the shot.

I don't know if you spent ages figuring out exactly how to do this shot, or it just had the right 'feel', but it is the kind of shot that makes you want to come back and look closer!

Nicely put and a comment on a great picture. One little thing, I would like to suggest a touch of straightening on the barriers left and right to make them stand erect.
